I will go with " E" over here to maintain the plural form of sentence structure.

Think it was discussed before. E is the correct choice since rest of the nouns are plural.

C: does'nt make sense
D: does'nt make sense (work is their hands?!)
E: correct (any people (plural) - their (plural))

Nothing wrong with A

anyone is a singular noun. The corresponsing pronoun should be either his/her, not their.
